I Saw A Spider

I Saw A Spider

I saw a spider, climbing down the wall.
See her spin a web, it’s so beautiful.
Along comes the fly, and he lands inside.
See him fight for his life, but it’s a shame cause she’s going to dine on him tonight.

Sometimes I feel like that fly.
And the world is a web and the government, is the one who keeps sucking us dry.
And I am white, and thats alright.
But the color of skin is the reason why we all want to fuss and fight.

And I don’t understand why. Why You treat me the way that you do.
You say that you love me but you don’t mean it I can tell by your attitude.
I wish we could just get away.. leave this planet earth behind I’m telling you one day.
It will drag you down, six foot deep.

So I took the holy water, from out of the toilet.
And made a cross for protection on my forehead.
What am I afaid of, why do I hide.
How can I escape this ugly, this ugly that dwells inside.

All because I saw a spider.
She was climbing down the wall.
I seen her spin a web it was so beautiful.
Along comes Mr. Fly.
And he lands inside.
I seen him fight for his life…
I seen him fight for his life…
But its a shame…
Cause she dined on him tonight.

I could tell you more about me. However, I think you will find us far more interesting, if we share more about ourselves. What do you say?

Come On! You know you have something to say.
